Victims of rape
Priscilla, aged 26, in her rented room though sometimes works as a prostitute, gets ready for her waitressing shift at local bar 'Bobs' in Mugumoini Village slum. Raped by 2 men on her way home one night after a party with friends she was left abandoned on the roadside, drunk and naked. A woman from the Kenya Wildlife Service found her the next day and took her home. She has continuous health problems as a result forcing her to make regular visits to the local community health centre. She has been an inspiration to other raped women in the community and continues to come forward.
This image is from a series focusing on and around the rape and the women victims that occur every half a day in Mugumoini Village in Nairobi's Southlands, a slum home to 20,000 people in abject poverty with little or no income, with the aim of creating exposure and empowerment for change. ©GGoodwin
